Chasing the Invisible: A Doctor’s Quest to Abolish the Last Unseen Cancer Cell
Chasing the Invisible combines the suspense of a spy novel with the education and scientific insight of a medical mystery thriller, all wrapped in a dramatic business story. In addition to revealing the detective work of medicine and its impact on physicians and patients, Chasing the Invisible features a colorful cast of Wall Street investment bankers, venture capitalists and the titans of a giant multinational company out to acquire the missing puzzle piece necessary to ensure the next phase of life-saving innovation.
Dr. Tom Grogan navigated his way through all those worlds to fulfill his vision. He ultimately transformed his classic biomedical start-up company—born as a diagram on a piece of paper and a jerry-rigged prototype built in his garage—into a successful multi-billion-dollar worldwide enterprise, following its acquisition by a Swiss pharmaceutical giant. Today his invention of an automated cancer diagnostics device that helps personalize the detection of cancer and enables doctors to treat it more effectively is transforming medical practice throughout the world.
Whether you’re interested in learning about science and medicine, or about entrepreneurship and how to create an exciting and dynamic leadership culture, or even if you’re just looking for a good read with wit and humor, Chasing the Invisible is worth picking up. If you’ve ever chased a dream bigger than yourself; if you’ve ever been rejected, impeded, accused, sued, held up, knocked down, flat broke, far flung, or near death with cancer, and you didn’t quit, this book is for you.
